The Natural Sciences Department offers a Coastal Environmental Science major and an Environmental Science minor, as well as a minor in Biology. Courses used to satisfy the major cannot also be used to satisfy minor requirements. The field of Environmental Science is interdisciplinary and therefore requires scientific understanding in the life, earth, and physical sciences as well as math and technology. A recommended Bachelor’s degree program will combine the Coastal Environmental Science major with a complementary minor or coursework in such fields as Biology, Law, Business, Public History, Education, Communication, Math, or others.
